Kimberley United Church will host a concert featuring the cantata, “A Child Is Born,” a retelling of the familiar Christmas story through song and word. Lyrics and music for this work were written and composed by Kimberley United Church accompanist-music director, Terry Macham. The cantata consists of ten original choral pieces written in a variety of musical styles, varying from 60’s “rock” to contemporary “pop.” A few traditional “classical” music style pieces are included as well.
There will be several opportunities to hear and enjoy the cantata “A Child Is Born.” Saturday, December 13th, 7:30 pm, Kimberley United Church will present “A Christmas Festival of Song and Music” featuring “A Child Is Born.” The concert evening will be complemented with seasonal musical selections by other local performers that include the Barbershop Quartet – “Sound Principle,” Dave Carlson and Carol Fergus, and others. Admission is by donation.
“A Child Is Born” will also be performed at Kimberley United during their worship service on Sunday, December 14 at 10 a.m. and again later that day in Grasmere. A final performance will be held at Christ Church-Trinity in Invermere on Sunday, Jan. 4, 2015. Both out-of-town performances start at 2 p.m.
The cantata choir is made up from members of the regular Kimberley United Church Choir along with a number of the Kimberley Community Choir, plus additional singers from the United Church congregation and individuals from the wider local community.
